Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

I agree with commissioner Patti Adair - there are other alternatives.

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.

Piping the canals will reduce the amount of water going into our ground water. There are to many wells going dry.

Students should behave with more maturity, have respect for other's property, at 17 or 18, they should know RIGHT from WRONG. I feel sorry for the other students' loss of celebration for their accomplishments because of the few individual's lack of common sense and respect...

The punishment of cancelling the events for the rest of the school was punitive and Orwellien. This collective punishment is reminiscent of the PRC or the CCP not the USA. Shame!

Should of not punished all students, 20 kids should pay for the senior BBQ and not be allowed to show. I do agree with lowering the charge from a felony.

These kids couldn't celebrate 8th grade promotion because of Covid, now they missed out on another normal tradition like the assembly to recognize the hard work of a majority of students. Bend Lapine prides itself of equity of all students yet the life skills kids didn't get that equity.

How dare poeple not give a damn about kids. When I was a kid you would get cited or arrested for indecent exposure. Enough with this lunacy way of thinking, other people besides naked people have rights too you all.

I support self expression, but public nudity could create opportunities for perverts to harm others. I am especially concerned about children walking around nude with strangers nearby.

The word indecent is self explanatory! It's there for a reason and no one wants to see other peoples private parts! Keep it behind closed doors in your PRIVATE HOMES!

we were born without clothes as long as the person that is naked is not acting in a sexual way or being obscene about it then is should not be criminalized. It is an expression of one's self and should be protected under 1A

As long as they are not engaging in immoral activities then they should be able to wear what they want, even if they don't want to wear anything. I do believe that even a first time event of anything sexual in public should involve a serious sentence. Rights shouldn't be revoked because of feelings

Very few people look better without clothes, and I don't want to see it. However, based on history and human behavior, there is no better way to make it popular than to make it illegal. Alcohol prohibition and banning assault rifles are good examples.

As usual, people who most vocally proclaim their own freedoms are the first to object to freedom for others.
